Right now I wish to introduce to you one of the most successful free to play - games: the double Golden Joystick - winner "League of Legends" by Riot Games!
League of Legends is a MOBA-Game (Multiplayer Online Battle Enviornment), which is oriented in direction of the famous Warcraft three - Map "Defense of the Ancients".
For individuals who never performed DotA (are there any?) and who do not know the game concept I will clarify it in detail:
League of Legends doesn't put high requirements in your PCs. You need at the very least:
- processor with 2 GHz - 1 GB RAM, - DirectX 9.0 capable video card, - 750 MB free onerous disk house, - DSL or related
Create an account both on the server EU West, EU Nordic/East or US, depending on the place you live. You can also create an account on US while dwelling in Europe however you'll experience increased pings then. I provide you with a hyperlink to create an account in my creator's bio. Choose a reputation (always the hardest half) and a nice picture and off you go!
There are 2 teams 5 gamers (there are extra game modes, but they aren't important at first because as a newbie you need to start with 5vs5 to study the gameplay). Before every match you all choose a "champion" who's the character you wish to use in battle. Dependant in your private preferendes it can be e.g. an undead mage, a large granite golem, a bit of boy using on a Yeti, a brave knight and plenty of more.All in all there are more than eighty (!) totally different champions and every second week one is added.
Every champions has 4 different skills (three regular and one additional robust, the "Ultimate") and a passive, which he has since the beginning. You be taught the abilities by leveling up ingame and your max champion degree is 18 which implies that you've 5 factors in each regular ability and three in your ultimate.
You receive expertise for levelling up by:
1. Being near when enemy minions or neutral monsters are killed by your troops (it isn't essential to kill them your self!)
2. killing or helping to kill enemy champions
To start with you typically play no matter you like, later it is helpful to communicate with your teammembers before the match begins so that you've a balanced setup and not 5 champions of the same kind.
The completely different sorts of champions are roughly:
1. Mages ("AP Carries": AP means means energy, they primarily deal magical damage with their skills)
2. Fighters ("AD Carries": AD means Attack Damage, they mainly deal bodily harm with their autoattacks)
3. Tanks (They're exhausting to kill and protect their very own carries, for instance by gorgeous or taunting the enemies)
4. Helps (They have either buffs or heals to support their carries and hold them alive)
5. Junglers (They don't begin within the lane but within the jungle and help their teammates by ganking and ambushing the enemies)
The fascinating level is: Relying on the objects you equip on your champions they're often able to satisfy completely different roles!
In the beginning you don't have personal champions, but each week there are 10 free ones which everyone can use. After some matches you should purchase more champions with influence factors (IP) within the shop. I'll come to this later.
The map has three different lanes, which lead from your individual to the enemy base. On these lanes there are a number of Towers which you will need to destroy before you'll be able to assault the bottom itself. As a support your predominant building ("Nexus") spawns minion waves in short intervals which enable you to in fights. Between the lanes there may be the "jungle", where impartial monsters are located. If you happen to kill those you receive gold and/or temporary buffs.
As quickly as the match begins everyone has about a minute to spend his beginning capital on items in the shop.
This doesn't take lengthy since you do not have much gold in the beginning. There are different ways to earn gold in the game:
1. Everybody receives gold over time
2. Killing enemy minions or neutral monsters (right here you will need to give them the ultimate blow, the so known as "lasthitting")
3. Killing or aiding to kill enemy champions
4. Destroying enemy buildings (towers and inhibitors -> destroying them makes your minions stronger)
5. There are several items which grant you additional revenue (the so known as gold/5 items -> they provide you 1 gold every 5 seconds)
In case you destroy the enemy primary building (Nexus) your group wins. For being able to attack the Nexus, however, it's a must to destroy all three towers and the inhibitor on at the least one lane and the 2 towers which protect the Nexus. So it isn't the very best thought to hunt the enemy champions 24/7 in the event you don't push the lanes at the same time. An average match takes 30-45 minutes, rarely more than an hour. As quickly as the match reaches minute 20 it is usually doable to surrender.
More game modes are a 3vs3 and a reasonably new domination map ("Dominion") the place you need to capture and defend sure points. As well as there are ranked modes for players with summoner degree 30 (rationalization follows) wherein you receive an Elo rely relying in your wins and losses. For newbies I highly recommend the traditional 5vs5 map!

of Legends additionally has an RPG part. You do not only choose a name and a picture for yourself (you are a so known as "summoner", do not mix it up with the "champions") but you're additionally able to stage up your self and purchase small buffs with Affect Points (IP).
